Over 30 hampers and food parcels have been donated to carers in Wimbledon.
The teams at the Wimbledon and Kingston office of Home Instead Senior Care, which provide care to older people in their own homes, used donations to produce the hampers.
Using food and goodies donated by staff, families, friends and contacts, the team received contributions from across the borough for their 2012 Hamper appeal.
Clare Jefferies, owner of Home Instead Care said: “We recognise that there are many who have such a tough life, caring for loved ones and dealing with very difficult situations, usually through no fault of their own. We thought it would be good to help bring a bit of cheer to their lives.
“We asked local organisations to identify people who most needed help and we were delighted to drop off 30 hampers to The Wimbledon Guild, Kingston Carers Network, Carers Support Merton, Kingston Association for the Blind, Merton Voluntary Services Council and The Stroke Association.
“We do hope this goes some way in making a small difference to older people within our local community and will ensure they have a selection of treats to look forward to, well into the new year."
